About Bob Dylan

Twas a dark day in Dallas, November ’63 
A day that will live on in infamy 
President Kennedy was a-ridin’ high
Good day to be livin’ and a good day to die 
Being led to the slaughter like a sacrificial lamb 
He said, “Wait a minute, boys, you know who I am?” 
“Of course we do. We know who you are.” 
Then they blew off his head while he was still in the car. 
—Bob Dylan's new song, his first in eight years, ‘Murder Most Foul

Beautiful Railway Bridge of the Silv’ry Tay! 
Alas! I am very sorry to say 
That ninety lives have been taken away 
On the last Sabbath day of 1879, 
Which will be remember’d for a very long time. 
—William McGonagall’s old poem, ‘The Tay Bridge Disaster’
